Lie to You (Forbidden Trilogy, #2)
Fall for Him (Forbidden Trilogy, #3) Expected publication: August 25th 2015
What if the person who stole your heart wasn’t who you thought they were?
When my parents passed away, I grew up fast. Learning to stand on my own two feet has been a challenge, but I’m making it… my way. I make no apologies for the path I’ve chosen. My choices have served me well, but no one knows the real me.
Except one man.
He’s a mystery to me. He’s controlling, demanding, and he has me wrapped around his little finger. Anything he wants, I’ll give it to him. The hours we share together aren’t about love. It’s just sex. Hot, dirty, passionate sex. It was never supposed to be anything more than that.
Until everything changed.
Now, I’m more confused than ever. The more I learn about him, the less I seem to understand. What I do know is that I’m falling, and I have the feeling when I land, it’s going to hurt.
I thought he was the one. I thought we were headed someplace great. I didn’t know anything.
My mystery man is no longer such a mystery. He’s still commanding and headstrong, playing my body and mind like an instrument, but I’m finding there are layers to him I never could have dreamed. What I’ve learned since that fateful night in his apartment has me reeling. Now, though, the truth has taken a backstage to other, more pressing matters.
While I struggle to make a choice that will determine the direction of my future, lies that I thought had been carefully hidden away are coming to light. My head is such a mess I don’t know what’s up or down anymore. Will I be able to sort it all out, or will the life I’ve worked so hard to build come crashing down in a pile of secrets and lies?
Do I have to tell you this story doesn’t end here? That there’s another MOTHER of a cliffhanger? Do I have to mention the insanity of the cliffhanger? Not if you read the story that started this roller-coaster, Dance for Me.
If you haven’t read it…. STOP. Go read it. Then come back and be prepared to .. “wait, what?”, A LOT!
In true and beautiful J.C. Valentine form, this story continues to unfold on one path, then takes a sharp left, comes to a stop sign and runs right thru it … And if you don’t get the meaning behind that, maybe this will help… Don’t blink ~ Trust nothing ~ It ain’t over till it’s over … THAT my friends is the story/journey of Josephine and Ransom or maybe Rebel … who reaaaaally knows!
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not an installment reader. I get WAY too invested in the people and the story, especially when a book is insanely good, to wait weeks on end or sometimes months, for the story to continue. So I normally just wait. I wait for the entire story to be published and then I dive right in. But every once in a while I break my rule. Sometimes it turns out well, other times it doesn’t. This turned out exceptionally well. This story was meant to be read in this format. Why? Because it is charged with so much electricity, it’s almost combustible!
If this trilogy was a full length novel, I myself would not be able to read it cover to cover in one swoop. Because you have to process. When I mentioned the story goes one way and then takes a sharp turn, etc, I REALLY meant it. And for you to truly appreciate the struggle of it all you HAVE to stop and take a breath. FANFRIKKINTASTIC job J.C. Valentine. I do not say this often, but the story’s cliffhangers are exactly what they should be and I LOVE that they’re part of this story. The twists and the turns and the “wait, WHAT?”s are perfectly presented….they suck you in and DO NOT let go.
I’m in awe at this point …
Lie to You is as hot, sexy, feverish, mysterious, unpredictable, complex, lustful, obsessive, edgy and electrifying as its predecessor, Dance for Me. I am STILL on the edge of my seat and I CANNOT wait for more !!!
